Tier 1 Argument:

Gaze: This buff is actually really really really nice under anti-magic aura. It levels the playing field and gives Qor mages both defensive and offensive pressure(mini-holds).
Deflect: This is a given.
Bless/Kara'hol's Curse: Offense needs to be easily checked. This 400+ offense adds to a host of other issues making aim's offense bonus obselete on most builds. Also, Kara's should not hold the user if purged, if it currently does.

Tier 2 Argument

Faren Resists: Resist spells are really aggrivating to deal with(forcing Neq/iwo witchery down our throats). Someone sitting around in perma 40+ resists to all elements as a non-witchery Faren mage is completely unfun. Having to put witchery on all of my characters turns me away from this game. Purge is no-longer god mode with the new system.
Free Action: Also necessary. Synergy with holding effects.
Armor of Gort/Resist Magic:  Boost damage a bit.

Tier 3 Arguments

Holy/Unholy Resists: Let these spells be purged again. The reason these spells weren't Purgeable doesn't apply under this new armor system. Back then partial magic attacks were overwhelming and needed to be balanced some way.
Eagle Eyes: Purging this much should/is an investment of mana. Removing this person's Eagle Eyes makes them vulnerable to longer CC than usual. This gives players a bit more control in group fights.
Invis/Magic Shield/Shadow Form: Lowering defense should be more difficult.
